Have you looked in the logs?  Firehol, by default, writes log messages
about blocked packets into the kernel message log, so they should show
up in something like /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages.

That should tell you which rule is blocking your packets or, at least,
give some hints about it.  Post the log fragments here if you can't work
it out yourself.

If you are not actually blacklisting anything, you probably shouldn't
have this statement.  You may be accidentally blacklisting everything
here, which isn't what you want. :)
